Access to Education, Opportunity to Serve

Each year, 25 students are selected to make a four-year commitment to being active citizens in the city of Richmond. Bonner Scholars are matched with nonprofits, schools, and government agencies that align with their interests in social issues and, for four years, intern at one organization in exchange for financial assistance. In addition to the meaningful connections and professional skills Bonner Scholars develop through their paid internships, they also participate in on-campus reflective exercises and educational programming to understand difference, power, and privilege; deepen their thinking about complex social issues; and prepare for active citizenship.

The application process for incoming first-year Bonner Scholars will begin in January, 2020 — check back here for updates!
